watching r.t. broadcasting live from the russian capital the headlines now hopes people have been found alive following sunday's sinking of an only. rescue a wrong was empty initial reports suggested it could have been up to fifteen people or more. north korea's longstanding leader kim jong il dies of heart failure at the age of sixty nine his death sending shock waves across the reclusive country and the whole region is youngest son kim jong un has been named as the successor.
explosive. fifteen people confirmed dead and dozens more injured in a series of violent rallies in the west of the country or to say the situation is under control in the region the rest was sparked by clashes between police and striking oil workers. talk to russia's deputy foreign minister what's ahead in missile defense talks between moscow and washington. we're sitting down with. russia's deputy foreign minister he's heading the russian side of the u.s. russia working group that deals with issues of global security arms control missile defense thank you very much for joining me mystery of russia and boyd to nato said the u.s. seems to be surrounding russia with military installations like an anaconda and that was his comparison and that russia would have to try and break out of that not how deep is the misunderstanding on the issue at the moment and does it seem like
all of russia's concerns are falling on deaf ears in washington i wouldn't describe this is along the lines as you did i think we have a very very productive and all the way straightforward a difficult one but a very productive dialogue with our u.s. partners we are making no secret of our concerns we are definitely disturbed by the fact that the strategic instability will grow according to our assessment because of the u.s. effort to deploy anti-missile assets in several regions of the world including in europe according to what was described by president obama and his people as european face the dept of approach when you're saying strategic stability will be disturbed what do you mean by that strategic stability is a very multiverse the term and notion that implies several things we
can for example not allow for further cuts in or fence of strategic weapons in nuclear weapons in the absence of a meaningful arrangement in the area of missile defense in the area of. conventionally armed or fancy weapons of strategic range. in the absence of real settlement in the area of imbalances with regard to conventional weapons it would be very irresponsible to believe that we just move forward in cuts in numbers of strategic weapons while advantages. and even predominance of u.s. and nato parties as a whole in other areas just grow you know it will always stretch the very concept of strategic stability and it may well break apart we are very sponsible in this
regard how close or how far is moscow from possibly pulling out of the start treaty of the us advances with their missile defense plans in europe we have a very clear explanation of this situation by a president with video of who on the vendor twenty third presented what i would describe as a phased adaptive answer to the phase the dept of approach our phased adaptive answer means that we are not rushing into any dramatic decisions like the kind you have just described we begin with a very militant limited response to what we think is a real danger a real threat to our assets if situation develops in negative way if we. are still and will be still unable to arrange with the us on something meaningful in the area of missile defense so then further action may
be in visaged including our view droll from the new start but we do still hope that we have sufficient time to make a deal to break a deal with the u.s. on missile defense is it just hope or do you actually hear something from your american colleagues that suggest that this may actually work out we are not seeing any changes in. the american position and we have the very same preoccupations and concerns as you have already heard on our part for quite a while so how to bridge this gap this is still a task to be resolved washington says they have iran in mind when unfolding the missile defense shield in europe how big of a threat iran really is in your opinion i think the overall assessment of iran's missile capabilities is hugely exaggerated by the u.s.
we do not thing that what iran is doing in the area of missile technology is in the area of development of long range missiles that all these underpins the u.s. stance that this you know technological hage against security risks is validated and that much attention should be paid to the development of missile defense capabilities in fact this is one of the areas where we have considerable differences of views with the u.s. that makes this whole discussion even more difficult did you get a sense that washington would not attack iran even though we hear all kinds of bold statements here let me tell you the following we are concerned by the very focused and forgive me for the word one day mention all u.s. approach to the rayney an issue. you know looking just that's at sanctions but they are pretending that they would be able to engage your brain is
diplomatically but we cannot see any concrete any specific move on their part towards this sand while they after day week after week we are witnessing sanctions and other new sanctions i do not believe this is the right way to go i don't believe the iranian party would ever offer any concession under that much of a pressure. we on our side we have long ago declared that according to our view this sanctions policy has exhausted its meaning and it simply makes no sense to continue this way we cannot share responsibility for this to belie a situation in the whole country which may fall further expansion of sanctions we think the only way of a way forward is that of compromise we can i think we still able to find
a deal breaker with the arrangements and what russia presented in form of the so-called lover of the land i think is a realistic alternative to the current impasse but it seems in washington they're really afraid of the words compromise with iran what if they do attack iran what would russia do i hope. i really hope that this will not happen we are doing our best to encourage the u.s. and for that case also always really friends to refrain from resort to force i think this is simply the way to know we're i here completely share the view of former national security advisor zbigniew brzezinski who just used the word catastrophe in describing what it would mean eve this war would begin even iran would be attacked this is a very dangerous path and i do believe we still have chance and time to avert this development and find a meaningful negotiated solution the u.s.
is winding down wars in iraq and afghanistan but for example they're expanding their military presence in the persian gulf what will the american security architecture look like after the pullout we regularly exchange views with the u.s. on this issue a regional security in the gulf is a very elegant topic with thing that the point here. to underscore on my part would be first. the should be ensured a real local regional ownership for security arrangements should be made that no one feels that its security is threatened because of the u.s. pullout secondly with respect to afghanistan we are telling our u.s. partners that we cannot understand the for what purpose they're contemplating a long term presence informed of u.s. military bases in this country and in some of the recent there is i think we need
further explanation for these plans you were talking on withdrawal i think this withdrawal should be full and complete how would you assess the results of the operations in afghanistan what kind of afghanistan is the u.s. leaving behind i think it's a bit too early to tell of results i think we are media way towards something different i think in many ways. the al-qaeda capabilities have been undermined by the us and by seth campaign where we see you less results or where we are not that satisfied with how things are moving is the area of drug production narco trafficking here we have a lot more to do also in the area of interdiction of america loads destroy all of laboratories and stockpiles and definitely also the cation of crops here we have a lot more to do with i serve and we hope for u.s.
and nato would be able to cooperate not only by a lateral deal with russia but with the collective security treaty organization this is an arrangement with our immediate neighbors in central asia that is very active in the area of counternarcotics with regards to syria the possibility of a military intervention in syria do you sense that it is diminishing. and as far as armed rebels in syria does russia have any information on who is arming them we do not want a repetition of the libyan scenario there the problem here is not that much of who is arming whom and through what channels although this is also an important part of the whole equation and we are in constant discussion of this aspect but the major political point on our part here is everyone all actors around all and all foreign powers everyone who really wants us stabilize situation there
should avoid action that may be regarded by opposition elements in this country as an incitement as you know a push towards a military solution no illusions should be left that this is possible we should do the reverse we should encourage and urge these forces and the government for that case as well to find compromises to move together towards a better future for the country to reform the country and we're working with both sides we should not take part is there the whole goal would be a more democratic and more stable and more inclusive syria rather than a divisive us towards a yet another civil war in a country that is that centrally placed in in a very dangerous situation in the middle east thank you very much for the interview thank you.
